CSC answers call for labour market information proposals
The Construction Sector Council, through its labour market information special planning committee, has answered the federal call for proposals to have critical construction labour data developed.
“We are now waiting to see how successful our submission to the call is so we can see a continuing of the LMI (Labour Market Information) in 2014,” said John Schubert, Canadian Construction Association (CCA) chair at the association’s recent board meeting.
The federal government recently announced its new Sectoral Initiatives Program with a Call for Concepts specifying three areas of interest: national standards, national certification and LMI.
The CSC submitted an LMI Concept Paper, in response to the federal call, seeking funding for the development of an LMI. A decision is not expected until 2013.
“If successful we will proceed forward,” added Schubert.
“We have agreed funding formulas, participation and governance documents put in place.”
The CSC will receive federal funding until March 31, 2013.
